Baker Ross Summer Holiday crafts

We have recently been testing out some Baker Ross Summer Holiday crafts as part of the Baker Ross blogger network. With the school holidays fast approaching it is time to start thinking about some crafts to keep the little ones occupied on sunny days in the garden or for rainy days indoors, Baker Ross have something to suit everyone.

Baker Ross summer holiday crafts,r ainbow paper

The first thing tbat caught my eye was this gorgeous rainbow paper (£3.75), it is so lovely and vibrant. So far we have used it as a background for some summer fruit printing and I think it will be a gorgeous background for some of the boys craft work.

Baker Ross summer holiday crafts, sand art

I have been wanting to try out sand art for a while now so i was looking forward to trying out the seaside sand art (£2.96) included in our box along with the mini bags of glitter sand (£3.49). To create the picture you peel of sections of the picture and sprinkle the sand onto the sticky sections. We all really enjoyed this, even Phil got into it. It can be a little messy so an ideal craft for the garden on a sunny day. I am ordering some more of these as it kept the boys occupied for ages and there are some great designs.

Baker Ross summer crafts, dinosaur frame

As we are currently learning about dinsoaurs the dinosaur photo frames (£3.75) were perfect for us. The wooden frames are easily decorated with felt tips and you can add photos or any pictures you like, my boys opted for characters from their favourite show. These would make really cute gifts.

Baker Ross summer holiday crafts, elephant mosaics

We have tried a couple of the mosaic kits before and these elephant mosaic magnets (£3.49) are bright and fun to make. The mosaics are so great for fine motor skills and hand eye coordination, they do take some concentration but are really fun and look great even when not perfect.

Stickers always go down well with all ages and these foam dog stickers (£2.99) are so sweet. Seb loved these as some of the dogs were like characters on Paw Patrol. Baker Ross stickers are always amazing quality and are super sticky too.

Baker Ross summer holiday crafts,  sealife notepads

The sealife spiral notebook kits (£3.49) are cute little notepads with foam stickers to turn the covers into cute sealife scenes. These were really easy for the boys to do and like most children they love notepads to draw in.

Finally we received a couple of items from the toy range. The pull back racing snails (£2.25) are lots of fun and are perfect for keeping the children entertained on a rainy afternoon.  For sunnier days touchable bubbles (£2.40) are the perfect activity for all ages, everyone loves bubbles! The party pets magic slates (£2.75) one of those things that is timeless, my boys love them, we keep them in the car for entertainment and at £2.75 for 8,  they would also be fab for party bags too.

Why not take a look at some of my other craft posts.
